William Sellars

The club was saddened to learn that supporter William Sellars passed away earlier this week, after a long illness.

William followed The Bully Wee for 78 years, after attending his first match at the age of seven. During that time he witnessed Scottish Cup triumphs and saw many great players in a Clyde shirt, including Leslie Johnston, Archie Robertson and Tommy Ring – to name a few who he heralded.

He was a previous Clyde shareholder before the inception of the CIC and a well-known face on matchdays, selling Cashline and Lottery tickets at both Shawfield and Broadwood. He was also the proud holder of season ticket number 1 when the club first moved to Cumbernauld.

William made lots of long-standing friendships along the way and went to most home and away matches with his dad, Charlie before he died and his son, Kevin. Unfortunately, five years ago, ill health restricted his attendance at games but he received reports from his good friend, Willie Kilpatrick and was able to watch match highlights on the website.

William’s funeral will take place on 14th March at St Helen’s Parish Church, Bonnybridge (1.30pm) and Falkirk Cemetery (2.30pm). The family welcomes anyone who wishes to attend.

The club’s condolences go to William’s family and friends at this sad time.
